Rome Targa vs. Ride Delta (2011 models)

I'm shopping for bindings for my new NS SL and have narrowed it down to these two bindings. I'm looking for something that has good heel/toe response, but still a playful front to back for my all mountain freestyle set-up. My previous all mountain bindings were Burton Cartels, which I liked how they felt. Thoughs?

What year Deltas? The 2011 Deltas are sick nasty

I haven't tried Targas, but everyone seems to love them for all-mountain/freestyle. You can adjust the Targas a lot.

Definitely the 2011 Deltas! Have you demo'd them? How's the response?

I loved the Deltas. For Ride, they are softer bindings. In the grand spectrum of things, they are pretty dead center of flex spectrum. Actually, perhaps not dead center. Medium stiff I'd say. I just really love Ride's 2011 line of bindings. They are comfy. The Deltas have a cool high-back. Some type of retro styling that gave my presses excellent support.

I wouldn't make the Deltas my freeride bindings, but for fun all-mountain freestyle they are great.

How would you compare them to my busted Cartels in terms of response?

Edge to edge will be more responsive now. Just cause your cartels are dead though. The thing I like about the Deltas this year is the new highback. Its a good deal softer (side to side) and wider and flatter making the binding a little more "tweakable" than in the past.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

How do you think the Delta highbacks compare to the Targas?

I don't like Burton bindings and the Custom's are my mortal enemy. I went through 3 different pairs of 2011 Customs and each one saw my rear foot toe strap coming undone due to all my tail presses.

I tried the Cartels as well and saw nothing special about them. I did like the lean on the highbacks though, although I can adjust my Flows the same way (which I pretty much do).

I'd take the Deltas over any Burton binding... even the c02 or 06.

I'm not considering any Burton bindings. I just liked the Cartels in terms of response and want something similar in that department.

I'm a little biased because I own Targas, but I'd go Targas over the Deltas. Laterally, I'd say both bindings are the same, however, from toe-to-heel, the inserts for the Targas allow you to customize the response so they would be more responsive, equal to, or less responsive than the Deltas.
